So we decided to start building a house this year. And by start building, I mean install a septic system because West Virgina doesn't want people just pooping in the creek.
It all came about because the Internet died. Remember that 500ft of Cat 5 we ran from one mobile home to the other? And remember how that sort of worked but then didn't? Yeah. So we came to the conclusion that we have to build the house. Closer to the internet.
It is the only way.
So we went to town and talked to the department of health, and they gave us a booklet and told us that we had to have a test done so they can make sure we have enough drainage. Or maybe we need too much drainage and okay maybe I didn't read the damn book.
Or course we are still a long way away from actually, you know building the thing.
You know, when you plan your dream house you have things that you want. Beautiful unique awesome things that you dream about having and plan on having and day dream about when you should be thinking about other things.
Now, to prepare yourself for the real experience, take about half of those things that you wanted, and maybe more if you are really poor, and just wipe them off the map.
Then your ready to build!
Ha ha ha! Isn't this exciting!
I have been torn between Oh god we are finally going to build a house I have been waiting years and years for this moment when we would finally start and it's going to be the best house ever in the whole world and Oh god we are going to have to actually build a house and what If we screw it up and county won't let us live there and everyone laughs at us and then I die alone in gutter because I am a failure at life and everything?
So I've pretty much been bouncing back and forth between giddy excitement and terror.
Yeah. So we are still busy trying to do all of those things that we need to prior to this house idea. Like fix the driveway and move the bunnies because there shed is smack in the way and pulling fence posts out of the house site and finding places to rent an auger because the septic test involves way too many holes to dig by hand.
And SWEET BANANA MONKEYS I AM GOING TO BUILD A MOTHER FUCKING HOUSE AND NO I WILL NOT STOP SHOUTING BECAUSE HOUSE, HOUSE, HOUSE, HOUSE, HOUSE!
With rooms and a staircase and plumbing and electricity and walls that don't give slightly when you press on them and more then two outlets in the kitchen and, and everything.
Congratulations! That's such exciting and great news! When you say that you're going to build it - do you mean that you and Scott are going to do all the manual labour? (*groan* I feel so small on this blog lol)ReplyDelete
Joking aside - I'm very happy for you :)
How exciting! My mother got to build one and then she was like a crack whore, begging Dad to let her build another house. She's built like 4 now and she's still jonesing. Careful! Could be addictive!ReplyDelete
Wow. How awesome and terrifying! ...and awesomely terrifying. and terrifyingly awesome. I feel your roller-coaster. and all the crap stuff has to be done first, so it will feel SO LONG until the cool stuff is being done.ReplyDelete
